The effect of   the ag  itation    is  problematical.    Much    depends    upon   the result of    t.he investigation   being   made   by   the    Scotland yard  detectives   and  other    oflicials.      The  authorities at    Scotland  yard   are inclined .to doubt that the  Madrid  plot    originated-in '  London.  The-   evidence     so   far   adduced    does  not  warrant   full  acceptance     of  the  claim     that   this    city    has   been   used  as   the    rendezvous   of   anarchists  and    as   the   base    of   their    murderous    operations.     The  general     idea  is  that judgement.      must   be suspend  ed  pending   tin-  disclosure of .proofs  and  details   of I hi? conspiracy!  ure of Port Arthur arid the Lino-'  tung- peninsula...
